A fable for all ages about a mirror which reflects an alternative world 'The Broken Mirror' is a collaboration between award-winning English novelist Jonathan Coe and the distinguished Italian artist, Chiara Coccorese. Jonathan originally had the idea for the book when he was in his twenties, but couldn't find the right form in which to tell it. Many years later, it was a visit to an exhibition of Chiara's paintings that finally unlocked the story. What emerged from their collaboration was a fable which quickly outgrew its original shape. Through the device of the broken mirror, the story traces Claire's passage into adulthood and shows us how it is our imaginations that really shape our lives.
